“Big Brother” contestant Aaryn Gries made headlines all summer — unbeknownst to her — for making horribly racist comments to and about her fellow “BB” housemates, but she’s speaking out against another “BB” cast member for his homophobia.
Boxer Evander Holyfield went on a tirade in the U.K. “Celebrity Big Brother” house Sunday (Jan. 5), calling homosexuality a disease and a handicap that should be cured by a doctor.
The production of the show informed Holyfield that his comments were inappropriate, and now another “Big Brother”-affiliated public figure is speaking out against his speech: Gries.
Apparently her own racist comments pale in comparison to Holyfield’s views (despite the fact that she called one of her housemates “queer”). “I know I said mean things, but at least I’m not ignorant enough to think that homosexuality is treatable,” she tells TMZ. “Seeing homosexuality as a sickness is outdated.”
